New Cure for Impotence: Frog Juice!

If you're squeamish, you may want to skip this one: In Peru, Extracto de rana or frog juice is a popular drink touted to cure asthma, bronchitis and .... impotence!

You go to the market stall and you pick your frogs from a tank. The vendor takes them out and bangs them against the table to kill them. Then she peels the skin off them and she fills the blender with hot white bean broth, some honey, raw aloe vera and a generous portion of maca. Then she adds your plucked frogs and she turns the blender on. And voila, a delicious warm glass of frog juice.

Ah, I see! Yeah, the electric current would certainly ruin any chances of getting untainted data and tainted data would just be bad science.

...corpses?! :o

@ Ali: We're currently studying a certain transepithelial sodium transport channel - zapping them creates action potentials that would ruin the data. Standard procedure is to double pith the frog, run the experiment, and then preform a thoracotamy.

@ Alex: Our university's unmarked door on the top floor is where the human corpses are kept.

@NeuroGirl: When I was an undergraduate working in a university lab, I had to go to the building's roof for an experiment ... and ran into an unmarked door. Inside were three large pools filled to the brim with frogs!

I always thought researchers would zap the frogs dead?! Since that is what we used to do in Biology class. :o


I think Panda tears don't cure it... ;)
